Have a read below to see what option is best for you.

Screen printing

Our most popular choice for branding products with up to five colours. Screen printing cost varies depending on the number of screens and colours i.e more colours = more screens = more expensive. We use GOTS certified water based inks that will last the life of the garment.

BEST FOR
Simple designs with up to 5 colours. No gradients or linework finer than 1mm

MAXIMUM PRINT SIZE
300mmx400mm, subject to the dimensions of the item it is printed onto.

MINIMUM ORDER QUANTITY
50 units per print (can be spread across different sizes in a style, or different styles, for example: 50 black tshirts with 1 white print, or 25 black tshirts and 25 black hoodies, both with the same white print). 

Your design is held on file by our print partner and can be repeated without incurring a screen set up charge for future runs.

WE WILL NEED
- Your requested print placement (see graph below for recommendations)
- Finished print dimensions
- Pantone codes for each colour being printed
- A finished art file, no less than 300dpi, in .ai .eps - bitmap format is vital

Embroidery

Embroidery provides a distinctive look and delivers a high-quality, hard wearing finish. Stitched with an automated embroidery machine this method can be applied to any garment but is particularly popular with caps and aprons. 

Best method of branding for caps and polos - we are happy to advise on whether your design is suitable for embroidery, please contact us for more info. Priced by complexity.

Timeframes

We work to a 14 working day turnaround from the date you give us sign off on your design. Sign off is given by you after you have approved the strike off/stitch out of your design (a one-off sample created to check placement, colour, size and clarity). You can elect to skip stitch out/strike off phase if you prefer a faster turnaround but please note no refunds are given on branded apparel once a job is complete.

After the production is complete, please allow 2-3 days for final quality control and dispatch to your nominated address.

Let us know if you have an urgent deadline - we will do what we can to meet this! Priority orders are accepted at our discretion based on capacity, and a rush fee may apply.
